Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Fires six shutout innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson tossed six scoreless innings Saturday against the Astros while allowing six hits and one walk. He struck out four and did not factor into the decision.

Gibson dueled with Astros starter Lance McCullers on Saturday as both pitched several innings of scoreless baseball. It was the 32-year-old's second time in this month shutting out the Astros across six or more innings; he pitched a complete-game masterpiece against Houston back on Sept. 16. As a whole, 2020 was an up-and-down campaign for Gibson as he finished with a 5.35 ERA and 58:30 K:BB across 67.1 innings.

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Handed sixth loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (2-6) took the loss Monday against the Angels, giving up seven runs on five hits and four walks while striking out four over four innings.

Gibson had a rough time in this one, surrendering one run in the second and six in the fourth, including a grand slam. The 32-year-old now sits with a 5.87 ERA and 1.57 WHIP to go with a 54:29 K:BB across 61.1 frames in 2020.

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Fires complete-game shutout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (2-5) earned the win against the Astros on Wednesday after firing nine scoreless innings. He struck out nine while allowing four hits and three walks.

Gibson's dominant performance stumped the Astros and rewarded him with his first career shutout across 198 games. The right-hander threw 74 of 114 pitches for strikes and whiffed a season-high tying nine batters en route to his first complete game since 2016 against the Braves. The brilliant outing came as a surprise after Gibson had given up 10 hits on five runs during his last start against the Angels. Gibson will carry a 5.18 ERA and 1.52 WHIP into a Monday matchup at Angel Stadium.

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Struggles in loss to Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (1-5) took the loss in Thursday's game against the Angels, allowing five runs on 10 hits and three walks across 5.2 innings. He fanned three.

Gibson's outing got off to a rough start with the right-hander allowing a three-run homer to Jared Walsh in the first. Mike Trout added a solo shot in the fifth before Andrelton Simmons chased the 32-year-old with a sixth-inning RBI double. Gibson will look to pick up his first win since Aug. 15 when he takes the ball Tuesday in Houston.

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Drops fifth decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (1-5) was handed the loss Thursday against the Angels. He allowed five runs on 10 hits and three walks while striking out three over 5.2 innings.

Gibson gave up three runs in the first inning and allowed 13 of the 28 batters faced to reach base. The right-hander sports an 8.07 ERA over the last four starts and a 6.14 mark for the season. Gibson is next scheduled to throw Wednesday on the road against Houston.

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Labors through 4.2 frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson did not factor in the decision against Seattle on Saturday, pitching 4.2 innings and allowing two runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four.

Given Gibson's high pitch count -- he needed 104 pitches to record 14 outs -- the end result (two earned runs and a no-decision) can be considered a small victory. The right-hander's early exit can largely be attributed to a lack of command as 47 of his 104 pitches went for balls and one of the runs he allowed came across on a bases-loaded walk in the third inning. Free passes have been an issue for Gibson of late -- he has issued 12 walks in 21 innings over his last four starts, during which he has also given up 19 earned runs. The veteran will carry a 5.91 ERA into his next start, which will come Thursday at home against the Angels.

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Hit hard by Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (1-4) allowed five earned runs on five hits and four walks while striking out eight across five innings to take the loss Sunday against the Dodgers.

Gibson surrendered a home run in each of the first three innings and allowed another run to cross the plate in the fourth inning. He finally managed to turn in a scoreless fifth frame, but the damage was already done. He's now allowed 17 earned runs across his last 16.1 innings -- spanning three outings -- which has inflated his ERA to 6.16 for the campaign. He'll look to turn things around his next turn through the rotation, currently projected to come Saturday at Seattle.

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Rough outing versus Athletics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (1-3) gave up seven runs on six hits and two walks while striking out six over 6.1 innings in a loss to the Athletics on Tuesday.

Gibson allowed a pair of two-run homers in the contest, to Matt Olson in the fourth inning and Marcus Semien in the fifth. Gibson then got into trouble early in the seventh, and reliever Ian Gibaut allowed two inherited runners to score. The 32-year-old Gibson saw his ERA inflate to 5.73 with a 1.48 WHIP and 26 strikeouts in 33 innings this season. Wins are hard to come by for any Rangers pitcher this season -- the right-hander will look for his second of the year in a tough home matchup with the Dodgers on Sunday.

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Takes no-decision in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson took a no-decision during Thursday's loss to the Padres, surrendering five runs on six hits and three walks while striking out three across five innings.

Making his first career start at Petco Park and first start against the Padres since 2017, Gibson turned in a shaky outing against a volatile lineup. The bulk of his damage came in the fifth inning, when for the fourth night in a row, the Padres cranked a grand slam. This time it was Eric Hosmer who inflicted the damage. Gibson also gave up an RBI single to Wil Myers in the first frame. Across five starts this season, the right-hander owns a 4.73 ERA and 1.54 WHIP. He'll battle Oakland on Tuesday.

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Gets in win column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (1-2) allowed two runs on seven hits and a walk with two strikeouts in 6.1 innings, earning the win Saturday versus the Rockies.

Gibson escaped Coors Field without any significant damage, with only a Tony Wolters two-run double counting against him. Four of the seven hits Gibson allowed went for extra bases. The right-hander has a 3.74 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 17:7 K:BB in 21.1 innings this season. He lines up for a road start versus the Padres on Thursday.

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Can't complete five innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (0-2) took the loss versus the Mariners on Monday, allowing four runs on nine hits and a walk in 4.1 innings. He struck out two.

Gibson did relatively well until the fifth inning, when he allowed a three-run go-ahead blast to Kyle Lewis. The Rangers were unable to retake the lead, and Gibson was on the hook for his second loss. He's got a 4.11 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 15:6 K:BB across 15.1 innings this season. The right-hander will make his next start Sunday in Colorado.

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Whiffs nine in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson allowed three runs on four hits and two walks and struck out nine over six innings in a no-decision versus the Athletics on Wednesday.

Gibson was solid in his second start of the year, but he gave up homers to Matt Olson and Ramon Laureano to account for the three runs. The 32-year-old Gibson has a 2.45 ERA and 1.27 WHIP across 11 innings this season. He'll keep searching for his first win when he starts versus the Mariners at home Monday.

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Denied two-start week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson isn't scheduled to start Sunday's game against the Giants, as the Rangers will instead go with Kolby Allard for the series finale in San Francisco.

Since the Rangers had off days Thursday and Monday and were down a starter after Corey Kluber (shoulder) was moved on the 45-day injured list, there was some thought that the team might go with a four-man rotation until a fifth starter was first needed Aug. 8 versus the Angels. Instead, manager Chris Woodward has elected to break Allard in as a replacement in the rotation for Kluber this weekend, robbing Gibson of a start on his normal four days' rest. Gibson won't necessarily be in store for two starts during the Rangers' six-game slate next week either, as Woodward could use Monday's off day to reorder the rotation. In that scenario, Lance Lynn would line up for two turns (Aug. 4 in Oakland, Aug. 9 versus the Angels).

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Tough-luck loser Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (0-1) took the loss Tuesday as the Rangers fell 4-1 to the Diamondbacks, getting charged with three unearned runs on five hits and three walks over five innings. He struck out four.

The only runs against the right-hander came in the first inning, after a two-out throwing error by Isiah Kiner-Falefa at third base kept the line moving for Arizona. Gibson wound up throwing 93 pitches (55 strikes), so he at least got to show he was fully stretched out. With the Rangers' new ballpark looking to be pitcher-friendly, Gibson could be a solid source of ratios this season, but wins might be hard to come by unless the team's offense wakes up.

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Will start fourth game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson is scheduled to start the fourth game of the season, Tuesday, July 28, against the Diamondbacks.

Gibson had a final tuneup Tuesday when he allowed five runs on six hits and struck out four over five innings. Normally a premier groundball pitcher, Gibson surrendered three home runs during the start. "I think the ball was up just a little bit," Gibson told Sam Blum of the Dallas Morning News. "In some of the situations with the home runs, I probably threw the wrong pitch at the wrong time, probably the ones they were looking for. They took some really good swings on pitches that were actually located pretty good." Much of the talk about the Rangers' new stadium, Globe Life Field, centered around its spaciousness and not being conducive to home run hitters, but that was not evident Tuesday.

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Adds 20 pitches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson pitched five innings and threw 79 pitches in Friday's intrasquad game, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports. He allowed two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out five.

Gibson allowed back-to-back home runs to Danny Santana and Rougned Odor, but the right-hander is on a steady progression as he prepares for the regular season. He was at 59 pitches in his first camp start and added another 20 his second time out. With two more starts expected during camp, Gibson, who projects as the No. 4 starter, should be in fine shape for the regular season.

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Reaches 59 pitches Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson threw five innings and 59 pitches in an intra-squad game Sunday, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Gibson is back to full strength after a 2019 campaign during which he dealt with a season-long battle with ulcerative colitis. Although he made 29 starts and five relief appearances for the Twins last season, the right-hander struggled with his strength and energy, consequently focusing on both areas during the winter. The condition presents a higher level of risk for Gibson should he contract COVID-19, but the right-hander is determined to pitch in 2020.

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Scheduled for action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson is scheduled to pitch in an intra-squad game Sunday, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Gibson is expected to be part of the Rangers rotation in 2020, but his situation got murky after the emergence of the coronavirus pandemic. As an ulcerative colitis patient, Gibson suffers a higher risk of complications if he contracts COVID-19.

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Preparing at home
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson is throwing at home in a 70-foot long shed with an artificial mound in his backyard in Missouri during the delay for major league baseball, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Gibson throws 40 to 50 pitches into a net, resting after about every set of 15 throws in order to simulate a three-inning outing. His six-year-old daughter holds an iPad hooked to a Rapsodo pitch monitor to determine balls and strikes. "I'm trying to mimic [spring training] as much as possible," Gibson said. "I figure we are going to have three or four starts to get ready. If you don't keep up your strength and endurance, you aren't going to be where you need to be when we get back." Last season, Gibson was stricken with ulcerative colitis, an auto-immune disease that puts him at an elevated risk for COVID-19 infection, although doctors told the right-hander there is no definitive evidence that he's at any higher risk for the disease's most serious manifestations.

Rangers' Kyle Gibson: Makes second spring start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson allowed one hit and one walk while striking out two over three scoreless innings in Saturday's spring game against the Brewers.

Gibson worked another scoreless spring start, but it didn't happen without drama. The Brewers loaded the bases with one out in the third inning, but the right-hander escaped unscathed by getting Orlando Arcia to ground into an inning-ending double play. Of Gibson's repertoire, he throws the sinker the most, so it's not surprising to see him generate the double-play groundout. He leads MLB with 136 double plays over the last six seasons. "Definitely glad those haven't left me," Gibson told T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com. "I feel really confident in those situations that I can get out of them. Definitely like to see those happen early on in spring." There was some concern that Gibson, who battled ulcerative colitis in 2019, might be behind other starters. However, he was able to throw another 15 pitches in the bullpen following Saturday's stint and, with another three scheduled Cactus League starts, should have his pitch count up in time to take his first turn through the rotation.
